ANADARKO CADDo COUNTY. OKLAHOMA JULY 30 1907.
No. 16 1
Newspapers to Appear in Court
and Show Cause for Refusal
to Publish Liquor Notices.
Today Judge Gillette rofuaod
to grant the peremptory writ of
mandamus sued for by Atty.
Morgan in whioh the Anadarko
Tribune iB to bo compolled to
publish applications for liquor
licenses that suitable notioe may
be given as contemplated by law
and instead issued an alternative
writ Betting Monday morning
August 5 for a hearing. The
Anadarko Democrat while not
named in the suit is also bound
by Judge Gillette's order having
refused with the Tribune to pub-
lish certain application.
The statuto upon which this
contention stands is:
Sec. 3 chap. 47 state of Okla-
homa 1803. "No action shall
bo taken upon said application
until at least two week's notico
of the filing of the same has been
given by publication in two news-
papers published in said county
having the largest circulation
Tho Tribune and the Domoorat
having tho largest circulations of
the county are tho newspapers
in which tho amplications must
bo published in order to fulfil the
provisions of thjgjow.
'The effect of refusing to pub-
lish and application to sell liquors
is to prevent the applicant from
getting" before the county com-
missioners who have tho right
under the law to issue or deny
the license for the reasons cited
in the statutes. The two papers
having the highest circulations
have arbitrarily for reasons
satisfactory to themsolves.refuBod
to publish certain applications
and it ib to compel them to pub-
lish those applications that the
mandamus is sued out.
The applications which the
Domoorat and the Tribune refuse
to publish are for the establish
mont of saloonB where there is no
Dolice nroleotion. This inoludes
Bpeoifically the line saloon and
the crossroad saloon. It is very
doubtful if as a legal proposition
they are justified in denying the
applioant his day in court since
the law makes tho commission-
ers' court the judge.
But the Btatutes of Oklahoma
do not direot that the newspap-
ers must publish these or any
other applications nor provide
any penalty for rofuBal to pub
The Negro In Politics
E. C. Rou9o one of tho most
prominent colored politicians
and perhaps tho wealthiest
colored man in Caddo oounty
was in tho city Thursday and
oallod at thiB office on busl
no88. By touohing Rouco in a
political way we soon learnod
that himself and all the colored
voters in Caddo oounty aro good
and soro at tho republican party.
He Bays that a negro in tho hands
of tho soheming republican load-
ers is tho most down-trodden
abused Bet of poople on tho face
of tho earth. Rouse says all the
republican oarea about tho nogro
is his vote.
Tho nogro never gota any rep-
resentation and is simply a will-
ing tool in the hands of tho pol-
itical sohomors who aro out for
tho negro vote. Tho negro has
to pay taxes and gets no repre-
sentation. The democratic par
ty holds tho only relief for tho
nogro race. They know just what
wo think of them and what to
oxpoot when they vote our tioket.
If suoh men as Rouso will get
out and lino tho weaker ones up
to vote with tho demoorats they
will be treated far bettor than
they over was before. The dem-
ocratic party is making no bid
for tho negro vote but if they
want to voto with us the latch
string hangs on the outsido.
Taxation without representation
is not right now nor never was.
